After closing its doors for fifteen months, this New Orleans-style oyster bar is poised to reopen on Sunday, June 13. The popular salon's 1,000-square-foot garden will take a little while longer, but we'll be first in line to sip absinthe among the flora once it's fully operational.
We learned last year that, with enough bells and whistles, outdoor drinking is possible year-round. But open air imbibing’s time to shine is still spring and summer. With appearances by boat bars, rooftops, secret gardens and newcomers, these are our favorite places to sip beer, wine, cocktails and all manner of boozy consumables in NYC this season.
